    I don't think ios4 will ever run smooth on iPhone 3g I've tried from 4 -4.1 I've also tried 4.2. Gm it's a bit better at somestuff but still not worth the update stay at 3.13 peeps

    Yes iam a noob to this site but I've read it daily for a longtime great little blog

    I honestly dont know how anyone can still be using a 3G. I'm using an iPhone 4 right now. 2 people at work have 3G's and whenever they ask me to do or show them something on their 3G its SO PAINFUL. I cant believe how slow it is after using the iPhone 4. And its not the OS. One is on 4.1 and the other is still on 3.x.

    I can't see how it'll be faster or smoother. Best bet to stay at 3.13 tbh.


    Your mom has "spirit" but I used my "pwnage tool" on her all night long and "ultrasn0wed" all over her. haha

    So, about that. I hope Apple is planning to release 4.2 official soon so I can jailbreak it on my iPad and finally FINALLY have the awesome that I've been waiting since April for.

    here's why some of us have the 3g:
    Because we are under contract and the verizon phone 4 is a few months away. walk from att office across the
    street to the verizon office with no
    fee's.
    besides..... 4.1 runs fine on my 3g
    and all the little upgrades make it palletable for the next few months
    Skyfire has also made it even better.
    No glitches on this 3G.....

    I love my 3G on 4.1.
    The upcoming upgrade is only a good thing with better performance I'm sure.
    When's the update hitting us?

    Sometime this week more than likely. Make sure you have your SHSH backed up if you use an unlock.

THANKS!
    get a hold of the latest ultrasn0w.deb file and put it in your autoinstall folder
    use something like cyder to get it

    No actually it's not. As of right now, there is absolutely no confirmation of this.. Don't hold your breath for a verizon iphone, it's been rumored every year ever since the iPhone's debut. It's hogwash until Apple announces it..

    I still have a 3G cause i kept holding out for a white 4. Though, at the rate they're going, i might as well just hold off and get an iPhone 5.

    I'd like to see how a 3G holds up on 4.2 and being jailbroken. Non jb is fine, but once it gets weighed down with Winterboard, etc., how responsive will it still be?

    disable the launchdaemons and langpacks, then see how responsive it is with winterboard

    personally, i like the standard look of the OS and i dont need winterboard for a wallpaper anymore. So my phone gets no winterboard AND the launchdaemon fix.
